It's been a while since you've heard from me on this blog.
Do you know why? You know why. It's only ever for one reason: because I'm writing.
But now the writing has ended. The time is nigh. The countdown has begun.
And no one knows about the secret machinations that have eaten up my time for the past several weeks in addition to my normal writing frenzy.
Now that the frenzy has ended, prepare for a slew of announcements from me over the next few weeks. The first of which is this: I just arrived at DragonCon in Atlanta!
For those of you at the convention who would like to meet me and complain in person about the inadequacy of my storytelling, I'm having a fan meetup on Saturday afternoon!
When: 5:00-6:30 PM on Saturday, August 31st.
Where: The courtyard of the Hyatt Place (which is not the main convention Hyatt; it's a smaller hotel about two hundred yards down the road). This one. If it's raining or way too hot we might meet in the cafe just inside the doors, but you won't miss us.
What: Typically this is an informal meet-and-greet thing where we just meet up and talk about the books. Last year we had about a dozen people, so it's not a big thing. Just chilling and talking and meeting you guys.
Who: Me and anyone who cares to show up.
Why: Because conversation with me is a non-stop thrill ride.
If you're at DragonCon, I hope to see you there!
If you're not at DragonCon, then brace yourself, because I will have news coming soon. Perhaps even very soon.

Anyone who complains about this mans storytelling gets hit with a plastic spoon on the forehead.

Don't you threaten me with a good time A-A-Ron!

Even very soon!? You are a cruel man Will. Now I'll be forced to reload the page every 10 minutes or so until it arrives.

*checks prices on last minute flight from Europe* ... crap.

Maybe I can force everybody in my family to go to Atlanta!!! P.S I hope you have a post actually soon. It was 3 weeks, maybe more, that you didn't put a blog post. Thought you were dead and had to be reincarnated as BATMAN.

I'm exhausted and all I've done is drive and stand in line
8/29/2019 03:39:23 pm
ultimate troll move: this was all just a count-down to the pre-order

I would be SO mad if that happened.
8/29/2019 04:39:15 pm
That's not a troll move, that is the truth. He's not gonna publish without significant time for news to get around

Uncrowned is the last item I need for my hurricane kit
8/29/2019 04:37:46 pm
Given his regular pace updating his Facebook profile picture, we should see the cover art of Uncrowned in a few days!

Will - Do you have a list of other potential fan meetups? I would love to drop by but I didn't know about this opportunity in time.

The first time I've been sick in three years and you have a meet an greeting far from where I live.I've come to the conclusion that will wight new that I was sick and therefore he is a wizard!

Wait, but I know. Does that mean I’m secretly a machine bent to your will? WHY ARE ALL OF THESE ONES AND ZEROS STREAMING PAST MY EYES!?!?!?

Sounds good, but will your twin Bill be there? He's the one I've been dying to meet.
8/29/2019 07:50:39 pm
Just got my dragoncon plans canceled because some people are probably going to want their power restored after this hurricane hits. Just selfish if you ask me. Was looking forward to meeting you, I guess I will just have to settle for the next books. Keep up the great work!
8/29/2019 08:03:54 pm
Awesome, I can't wait for the new books (especially Uncrowned).
8/29/2019 08:44:59 pm
In general, Will is not a number guy. If you find those kinds of errors in the books, just make up a canon and move on. They’re usually mistakes. Hope that helps.

You should bring these over to the Sub Reddit page. I bet you would get your answers pretty quick.

1. The existing number of Eyes can fill up 2/3 of the cages, the balance 1/3 being surplus capacity for additional Eyes if required.
8/30/2019 01:22:31 pm
1. That doesn't make sense. That would mean there are about 7239 cages which is a random number (even if we treat it as an estimate) whereas 4096 is a very precise number, 2^12. Why would Northstrider make the tree with far more cages than Eyes? Even if he did, wouldn't it make more sense to make it some number more related to the number of eyes, like 8192 or even 6144? ie twice as much or 50% more as if he planned to make that many eyes and never got around to it?

@ Robert re #2, please refer to the text you've quoted in your OP. Some techniques are like class skills. You have to be at a certain level to use them. Mercy can use techniques above her current level but only for a short period of time.

Dear Will, please try not to get eaten by a dragon at DragonCon. Otherwise, who would published the next book? You know what you should do just in case? You should put the book on amazon early just as a precaution. You wouldn't want your readers to starve to death would you? You wouldn't do that to your readers would you?

Dragoncon sounds amazing. Except I hate human contact outside of work. So I'll buy a mug as support. Nothing again you.

Cover announcement on 1st of September. Book announcement in first week. Book on 1st of October (almost).

Brandon Sanderson. Name Brandon Sanderson your in case of emergency author. He did an amazing job finishing the wheel of time series for Robert Jordan

Unpopular opinion: I love the first 2 books in any Sanderson series. All following books leave me feeling as if there is no point to the continue. It's like the either the plot is fully reveled or at the very least I feel I am not looking forward to anything. Not so with Will.

I really wish you'd have published the meet up information last year to your blog. I even bought a paperback of Unsouled for you to sign...*sigh*. This year I unfortunately have family medcal issues that precluded me going. Have a great time, enjoy whatever flavor of panels/shopping/cosplay watching is your thing! I loom forward to hearing the book news when you've recovered.
8/30/2019 01:03:57 pm
Would love to come, alas, it is a continent away.
8/31/2019 12:06:10 pm
I'll be there! Super excited that you'll be here. May be a bit late.
